British Folk Tales and Legends : A Sampler, Paperback

British Folk Tales and Legends : A Sampler Paperback

Part of the Routledge Classics series



In 1970 Katharine Briggs published in four volumes the vast and authoritative Dictionary of British Folktales and Legends to wide acclaim.

This sampler comprises the very best of those tales and legends.

Gathered within, readers will find an extravagance of beautiful princesses and stout stable boys, sour-faced witches and kings with hearts of gold.

Each tale is a masterpiece of storytelling, from the hilarious 'Three Sillies' to the delightfully macabre 'Sammle's Ghost'.
